7.3 cranks, no start
2003 F250 cranks but won't start. I noticed oil pouring out of my HPOP so I bought the o-ring kit and fixed the leak. I put it all back together (or so I thought >.< ) and cranked it over. I heard fuel dumping on the ground, so I quickly stopped and realized the fuel inlet going into the bowl was unhooked. So after feeling like a complete idiot I looked up on how to bleed the fuel system, because I assumed I had air in the lines. So I bled the system to the best of my knowledge and help with other threads throughout this site. The fuel bowl squirts out a little bit of fuel, so I know I need to replace that asap but could that be a possibility of why it's not starting?
Also, I filled my HPOP reservoir up with clean oil and cranked it over for about 15 seconds. I opened it back up to check the level, and it barely moved if any and the oil was clean as a whistle. I'm thinking the pump isn't pumping? If so the oil level would have dropped and the oil would be black from being pumped back into the reservoir I would imagine.
I read a lot of posts about people saying it was their IPR or glowplug relays, but the truck ran fine just over a day ago, just leaked oil a little bit.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated, as I'm out of work until this issue gets resolved. Thanks in advance
